Alaina Colpitts, RYT-500, of Within You Yoga
Hi. Welcome to Within You Yoga, a little space in the world where I have the honor of holding presence either online or in-person throughout the mountains of Western North Carolina.
Within You Yoga is a project inspired from the many great and terrible life experiences I've had the privilege of moving through. It's a space where folks can move, be still, and connect: inwardly and outwardly.
This is a place for healing and honoring the myriad of human experiences - many that we in fact, share. My life's passion is to help improve relationships between people and their own true nature and body; no matter what age, race, creed, size, ability, gender, or religion.
Moving here usually looks like Yoga Asana, dancing, or walking in the woods. Stillness usually takes form in Meditation, Restorative, Yin, and/or Gentle Yoga. Connection happens all around - within, outside in nature, and/or over tea, snacks, and nutrient-dense meals.
I specialize in holding small retreats that combine all of the above.
I bring life and teaching experience to my practice. Including, but not limited to: love, loss, embodiment, spiritual awakening, trauma healing, and seven years working as a Yoga Instructor.
My life, work, and nature is dynamic, and ever-evolving. Alongside my passion for teaching Yoga and other healing modalities, I manage Canton's Mill Town Farmers Market, and I work as a Virtual Assistant to a successful business owner in Washington DC. All of these roles play their part in furthering my evolution as a teacher and leader.
Thank you for being here. Let's get curious and see what unfolds as we work together.
